Pee Wee Pee Wee - Behind The Awkwardness

“I really liked Pee Wee Herman when I was little, here’s me in the costume I wore for 4 months straight. The white shirt is browning at this point, since I had worn it since October and this photo was taken in January.”

Cool Ray

Cool Ray - Behind The Awkwardness

“My parents had a traveling puppet show that my sister and I grew up performing in from ages 8-18. This is one of our promotional pictures of us with a puppet we worked together, named… Cool Ray. YES. Kids could buy a picture for $ .25. And did. I’m on the left, apparently sporting the same hair as the puppet.”

A Family Tradition

A Family Tradition - Behind The Awkwardness

“Every year my mom thinks of a theme and has my siblings dress up to go see Santa. This year was mischievous elves. My parents started doing foster care when I was in 3rd grade, that’s why there’s more kids in a couple pics. I think I was in 5th grade when my mom started the themes with Santa. She would have us go to the Santa in the Mall, which was extremely embarrassing some years, but now looking back its definitely one of my favorite memories. Once you turn 18 or move out, you don’t have to do it. The most recent on is of my brothers.”

“My sister went to Paris and saw Sean Connery taking pictures with all these people. She muscled her way in and asked for a photo, all pleased. It wasn’t Sean Connery. This man had been taking pictures with his family.”

Marking His Territory

Marking His Territory - Babies

“This picture was taken in July 2012 for my daughter’s 3 month photos. We decided to let the dog join us, and my daughter was supposed to rest on the his side, but it looks like the he’s about to pee on her. My son is just miserable, and his popped Polo collar makes him look like he has stud earrings.”

Learning To Sew

Learning To Sew - Behind The Awkwardness

“When our mom finds a hobby it quickly turns into a torture technique for the rest of us – from making us look like Rabbidiots to “custom” silk underwear – each week holds new stitching surprises for the whole family.”

The Irritated Four

The Irritated Four - Behind The Awkwardness

“It was the hottest day of the year, and car ride to Olan Mills was without air conditioning and Mom, Grandma, my cousins and myself were all crammed in the car together.  On the way Mom got pulled over for having a broken tail light.  Needless to say by the time we got there everyone was already over it.  Those dresses were hot and itchy, and even time our photographer was ready to shoot, someone started crying or had to go to the bathroom.  I’m the one on the far right with the face.  I still make that face to this day when irritated!”
